Central Park Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This is a classic neighborhood restaurant - a hidden gem - so good I am hesitant to let others know about it! It has great food - a charming staff and a comfortable atmosphere. They really have thought of it all - girls ( woman) check out the restroom with the never run out paper towel and that oh so awesome picture of my favor icon on the wall!
Consistently fresh & delicious menu items. The staff is exceptionally friendly & attentive. There's a sweet little quiet corner along the windows facing the street & the patio is charming too. Every time I eat at Central Park, I'm glad we came. We'll keep coming back & introduce more friends to this lovely little spot.
This was our first visit to the Central Park Restaurant, and we really enjoyed it! We had the Tomato Stack to start, followed by the succulent braised Short Ribs as well as the Short Rib Linguine. All were tasty and hearty portions. We followed this al with a decadent chocolate cake which was delicious, but quite dense and very filling.
All in all, a good meal, and we look forward to returning to try many different menu items in the future!
I have been there for breakfast lunch and dinner. I've never been disappointed. Excellent menu choices very good service price is very reasonable. I was there this time for a special occasion dinner and had a great time, service was very helpful. Their seafood is excellent but also Have delicious short ribs and burgers. This time I had a crusted salmon and it was fantastic . However the key lime pie is world-class . One of my favorite Pasadena restaurants.
We had been there several times before and knew we would enjoy our special lunch. The table was perfect, quiet and comfortable. The food was truly outstanding. Everyone was very impressed with their food. I decided to try something other than my usual pasta and ordered the swordfish soft tacos. They were terrific! Very original with lots of surprising tastes that came together perfectly. It also came with a cup of gazpacho. What can I say. Wow! Our server, Maria, was a delight and helped make our occasion extra special. Great place!
Tip: It can get quite loud when it's busy. We chose to go at 2:30 for lunch and that worked out well.
SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. WAITER AND HOSTESS WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. WE HAD THE PASADENA RESTAURANT WEEK DINNER OF ENTREE (RISOTTO FOR ONE, TENDERLOIN FOR REST), APPETIZER (LOBSTER BISQUE FOR 1 AND HOUSE SALAD FOR REST) AND DESSERT (CHOCOLATE CAKE FOR ALL). SALAD WAS TASTY, NOT OVERLY DRESSED AND HAD GOODIES. SOUP WAS FINE, BUT MY FRIEND SAID IT WAS BETTER AT OTHER PLACES. RISOTTO WAS WELL DONE WITH LOTS OF VEGGIES. TENDERLOIN WAS SERVED AS REQUESTED AND VERY TASTY WITH SCALLOP POTATOES AND ASPARAGUS. ENJOYED BY ALL. CAKE WAS FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE WITH ICE CREAM. VERY GOOD. WILL RETURN SOON.
Food was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised. I got the prison fix menu of filet and the portions were right without overwhelming. The veggies and steak cooked tender and flavorful. Partner got the chicken piccatta with the rissota and french onion soup. All delicious. Flavorful, and the service impeccible. Definately a hidden treasure
The food was great and the service was outstanding. We had a large group and our server provided attentive service to all. There was no wait to order, and all of our orders were correct. Also, she checked in on us frequently. The menu has a variety of delicious sounding items making us want to return to try some of the other dishes. The grilled chicken caprese on foccacia with broccoli salad was excellent. Definitely a place to go.
This small street side restaurant is a local find. Seems to be a favorite with a slightly older crowd. We went for a birthday and everyone had the same special dinner selection. Service was slow but pleasant. Food was good if slightly over sauced. We all had the tenderloin beef with potatoes and asparagus. Martinis were quite nice. The best part of the meal was the key lime pie!
The food was really outstanding. My husband loved his crab bisque and his short ribs were the tastiest I have had in the area. My sand dabs were very good too, our guests loved their meals also. My only less than positive comments would be that we were seated for an hour before our entrees came and it was crowded and noisy. Nevertheless, we will probably make this our tradition when we go to the Pas. Symphony.
This app is amazing ! I was able to make a reservation no problem on Valentine's Day ! The restaurant called to confirm and everything ;). Our waitress gave us great service and the food was great! Brick chicken & peppercorn steak were our choices ! Thank you!
We were seated promptly on a very busy Valentines night. Overall the dining experience was good as usual, but we had to send back the calamari because it was not even close to crispy as it had been described. The waiter handled it with a smile, but the second plate was still not as crispy as we would have liked or have had at other restaurants. The other food in our order though was fine. We ordered sand dabs and seafood with rice, both were very tasty. We like that this restaurant is easy to get to and offers good choices for breakfast or dinner.
Visited for the first time on Valentine's Day. Great, cozy place and exceptional service. We'll be going again. Central Park Restaurant is a great find.
Nice ambiance and relaxed feel, and a great place for a date. Also, with the park across the street, it is nice to walk after dinner.
The wait staff is always polite and offers great suggestions. If dietary restrictions prevail, adjustments to the menu are welcome (I'm sure, within reason). The food is esthetically pleasing and tasty! I encourage you to add a few vegetarian dishes which are easily modifiably Vegan, and several Vegan selections. It will broaden the demographics and make me even happier!!!
